Why talk to a career coach?
Get advice and info, based on where you’re starting and where you want to be. Talk to a coach 1-on-1 or join a group advising session, so you can take the next step in your journey with confidence.
TeachSC coaches are certified teachers. If you’re new to teaching, they can help you with questions like:
- How do I know if teaching is right for me?
- How do I get certified to teach?
- How do I choose a teaching program?
- Anything else you want to know!
Plus, when you sign up with a coach, you’ll get access to every TeachSC product and service — all completely free.
Not sure if a 1-on-1 call is right for you? Group advising sessions are also a great way to learn about becoming a teacher.
Group sessions are held monthly and cover topics like:
- Steps to a teaching certificate and how to choose your subject area
- How to choose a teaching pathway and program
- How to get career and financial support from TeachSC
Every group call includes a Q&A session! Bring any questions that are top-of-mind for you. You can always schedule a 1-on-1 call if you think of more questions later.
To join a group session: Click the “Sign Up” button to open the group advising Eventbrite page. There, you can click “Select a date” and choose the session that works best with your schedule.

Coaching is available to anyone brand-new to teaching — without a teaching credential or experience as a lead teacher in any state — who is living in the U.S., or is a U.S. citizen living abroad. If you’re not eligible for coaching, you can learn more about becoming an SC teacher with the TeachSC Certification Guide or from the South Carolina Department of Education.
